Donner Soda was part of the Truckee Soda Works that operated out of the Chinese Herb Shop in Truckee, California. The company was owned by William Englehart, Sr. who had previously operated a theater and then a grocery business before opening the bottling company in the early part of the Twentieth Century. His greatest success came with glass bottles as the owner of the Truckee Soda Works. It was rumored that some of Truckee’s finest bootleg whisky was produced here during the Prohibition years.
See photos. Do you collect soda, beer, alcohol bottles, Pharmacy, Drugstore bottles? Well we have a large selection, over 80 listed. We acquired boxes of old bottles . In storage for many years was a wide assortment of soda, beer, pharmacy, drugstore, and old empty liquor bottles. Some had labels on them, many labels had fallen off and were in the bottom of the box. We have cleaned the bottles and tried to affix labels to the right bottle. Surprisingly the labels are in very good condition. Many of the soda and beer bottles we are selling we acquired from a private collection.
